    Create Hyperlinks on Export to PDF

    johnnycho

      I've never done any InDesign scripting, but I have a problem that the out-of-the-box app doesn't address. Basically I have a lot of product names in my InDesign document, and I'd like them all to be unique hyperlinks to corresponding product pages on a Website. I'm thinking there must be a way to script it so that when I export to a PDF, InDesign check will check against an XML file with the product names and corresponding URLs and create the appropriate hyperlinks. Is that not how scripting works? Is what I'm suggesting impossible for some reason or do you think it would be possible to write a script like that? Does such a script (or something similar) already exist? Thank you.
